5 Ways to Improve Your Home’s Interior Design

by Rohit on Sep 11, 2018

Do you enjoy wasting your money, time and effort? Of course not. Yet, that’s precisely what happens to a lot of people when they want to improve their home’s design. Often, a majority of problems could have been prevented if we spent more time thinking and planning – before acting on impulse. That’s why we’re going to look at several principles for improving your home’s interior design, the right way.

1. Learn

Let your creativity fly – the sky is the limit when it comes to your imagination and home design. Do you want a cacophony of different styles, textures and cultural aspects? Or do you want to go for a minimalist, bare-bones (but equally sophisticated) look? You’ll never know until you learn about what you enjoy most. Grab a notebook and go through each room, writing down ideas you have for that room.

2. Focus

Admittedly, the list you have about what you’re looking for from your home is huge. That is okay – we were just brainstorming all the possibilities of what could be done. Now it’s time to look at the list objectively. In order to maximize the potential for your interior design efforts, go through the list again. This time, as you look over each idea, ask yourself if it is what you need from the space. As you look over your list, think about what it is about the room that you need to get done.

3. DIY Everything

Of course, no matter your ideas, taking a few home inspector courses in your local region (or online) is the surest way to guarantee the safety of your home. This is because certified home inspectors look for the quality of plumbing, structural foundation, the siding, electric circuits, etc. Learning the ins and outs, yourself, will save you a considerable amount of money – as opposed to paying someone else to do a job you are capable of doing yourself.

4. Neighbourhood Appeal

I live in a fantastic part of town. A block down from me is a steady stream of homes that look 150+ years old. Refurnished to fit the modern look pervading today’s societies. I get a lot of inspiration every time I pass these homes, with their old-timey green-stained porches, or “castle curves” in the front (where I presume their living room is), or simply how they set up their driveway’s entrance. There is a lot of inspiration about exterior design you can pluck from your neighbours’ homes. It certainly wouldn’t hurt to knock on the door and ask them who created that design, and if they would be willing to work with you to design your home similarly.

5. Get Rid Of Clutter

By far, the biggest sin when it comes to interior/exterior design is clutter. From clogged gutter drains, to a porch that serves as a storage space, all the way to a living room that has too many collectibles stealing away from the focal point (if there is a focal point). Having too much “stuff” is the bane of all designers. That’s why knowing the basics of what works (and what doesn’t) is essential for making the most out of your remodeling and designing efforts.

Conclusion

No matter the design you choose for your home, every room within it must be unified. This means picking one theme and sticking to it. Otherwise, you’ll end up with an Elizabethean-styled living room, futuristic/simplistic bedrooms, a floral-patterned kitchen, etc. Please be sure that each room is uniformed, without sacrificing the overall individuality of your home. Each room must have “personality.”
